2015 Vuelta stage 9: Torrevieja > Cumbre del Sol 168.3km

Though this ^ doesn't really correspond with another profile I found:

cumbre-del-sol-puig-llorenca_vuelta-2015.png


(The first pass they only go to km 3.2 on the profile)


Long ride along the coast. North east - eastern wind, 4 bft, but it's still a long way to go when they leave the coast and go inland. Not a very hot day. Around 23°C.

Can anyone explain me why this climb is two categories higher than the mtf from stage 2?
I really have enough of short climbs at the end of a flat stage. Cant wait for the 2nd week.

Are you the one who said a couple of days ago you love those uphill sprints? ;)
 
WTF is with the profiles from Unipublic? Dan Martin was also complaining about that, saying that they were waiting for 14-15% ramps that ended up being 5% so everyone was holding back their attacks.

Chaves FTW again? Or is he a marked man because of his red jersey. Maybe Purito will finally shine.

I don't remember it but maybe. :D
However that was probably after the first or second one but this is the 5th short uphill finish in 8 days and that is simply too much, which is the reason why I am already sick of it

They are stupid if they just look at the profiles of la Vuelta, thay have time enough to study the profile of that climbs... I do that even in the winter, and they are getting money with cycling.

Today is very easy.
